In the past couple of years, there's been quite a bit of debate centering around the use of SAT scores to determine whether an applicant should or should not be admitted to a college. Even with the restructuring of the test in the Spring of 2005, there are still questions on whether SAT scores should be used as a last factor, to determine whether student A or student B should be admitted, if they match in all other categories, such as grades, strength of courses, extracurriculars, volunteerism, etc. Are alternative tests, such as the ACT, more accurate in determining the success of a student?
What do you think? Should SAT scores matter less than they do now? What credentials should be held in higher regard when it comes to college admittance?
There's also this list of colleges that do not require test scores.
